Just wondering if there was anybody in the San Diego area that is thinking about doing a group buy or wants to plan a group buy. Oh and i am referring to Malt.

Well we got two people so far. I read the group buy rules and from what i understand you would have to have some seniority in the forums to be able to put this together. but i can get some of the footwork done.

Well i just called "The Country Malt Group" out of Hayward Ca. and they said they can only sell to breweries and those with a license of some sort. I asked her if that was state law and she said no it is "their policy". I told her they were missing out on alot of business.
I guess ill try again somewhere else.

Damn, I've been waiting for a California-based group buy for ages now, but San Diego might be a bit far for me to wander. Still, I might consider it if you guys find someone willing to sell...

still looking for an outlet, but i think Country Malt Group pretty much has a monopoly out here. And their policy is to not sell to home brewers. Everyday I see another reason why i fricken hate commifornia!

I'm pretty sure all the malt companies don't sell to homebrewer's unless you have bought from them before.

I think I have also heard that NC Malt will only sell to previous customers now

I've asked the guys at Home Brew Mart about buying in bulk and the only thing they said I could buy in bulk would be Rahr 2-row.

I dont have a whole lot of free time on my hands right now but I'll see if I can do a little digging into a group buy. If I find anything I'll pass it on

Country Malt Group sucks man, I don't know why they won't help out home brewers. Especially when we are willing to go out of our way to organize a group buy and make it very easy on them.

They wouldn't even let me drive out to Hayward and pick up some of their malt. Can we just lie to them and tell them we are a licensed brewery? I bet they don't even check.

I PM'd somebody in this thread to say that I might be able to help. The guys in Tennessee have an account and I could probably order it under our account and have it delivered to you guys.
